How do I re-root impatiens clippings? Water or dirt?

Its up to you. I use water. If you use some kind of soil, make sure it is well drained, Impatiens cuttings are pigs for rotting off when they are wet.

Kathy2, this is my first year clipping impatiens and I've had wonderful luck when I first put them in water for a few days. I don't think any of the ones I've used dirt with took. I know it can be done tho. Good luck!

I used to just put them in dirt, but they have rotted off this year and I put them in water and have had good luck. jjappleby
